Google I/O is the one event many people have expectedly and somewhat patiently been waiting for. It'll use that information to suggest travel articles you might want to read about a particular location you're researching, along with suggester day plans and activities like restaurants you might want to check out.

This month, Google revealed new privacy tools, which will enable users to gain more control over how they are being tracked, part of the broader efforts by tech giants to counter growing scrutiny of data collection practices.

"You told us you wanted a rating based on what your app is today, not what it was years ago, and we agree", said Milena Nikolic, an engineering director leading Google Play Console, who detailed the changes at the Google I/O Developer conference today.

"As you plan a trip, your research and reservations will be organised for you in Trips", says Google's head of travel product management, Richard Holden, in a post on Google's blog. Google Hotels does something similar for places to stay.

Some highlights include the Google AI assistant and abilities, Android Q Beta 3, new Google aspects for the different apps (Google Play Store and Maps) and its search engine and the new Pixel 3 smartphone line.

"We're now rolling this out on desktop as well".

Moreover, on the off chance that you track flight prices on a Google search, the landing page will likewise display updates for any progressions that happen. Weather forecasts will also automatically be appended. Soon your hotel and restaurant reservations will also be visible on Google Maps. It will now pinpoint popular neighborhoods nearby and what they may be famous for. We can find some of the information related to travel from Google Search itself. Presently, when you visit, you'll first discover Trips which gives users a chance to plan their travel via searching through a destination to discover options for flights, hotels, travel guides, or vacation packages.
